Sticky Ribs

An out of standard response to Izy’s Out of Standard Prompt – Living in a Fallout Shelter.  We had a fallout shelter when I was growing up.  It was a selling feature and was designed to house comfortably, six people.  By the time the house had sold when I was an adult, it had become a storage facility for apples and taters, canned foods, a groovy place to go and smoke dope.  An American sentence – complete sentence with exactly 17 syllables.  Created by Allen Ginsberg because for some reason, he couldn’t follow the rules for classic haiku.

“I just love Chinese food. My favourite dish is number 27.”  Clement Attlee

One year alone in a shelter, I miss Chinese sticky  ribs the most.
